North Carolina's 21st Century Center.

The nation's first-of-its-kind Center for 21st Century Skills will be created in North Carolina to help students acquire the knowledge and ability needed for success in the global economy.

The center will be housed under the North Carolina Business Committee for Education within the governor's office. NCBCE is a nonprofit consortium of businesses focused on providing a business perspective to the state's education system. Gov. Mike Easley's newest budget includes funds to NCBCE in the coming fiscal year and $500,000 the following year to create the center.
